Yogurt drops for teething

It's that time again.  That time when the grumpy teething monster rears its ugly head!  Our little ones have teeth coming in, and it is making them cranky!  We're always on the lookout for things to ease their pain, and these yogurt drops are fast, easy, and perfect for the job.  Now, if only Sophie the Giraffe came in yogurt form!

  • 1/2 cup yogurt (greek or strained works better for getting "plumper" drops, but we used plain organic and it worked but the drops were thinner)
  • fruit or veggie addition of your choice (we made 2 batches: one with 1/2 avocado and one with 1/2 banana) 
  • parchment paper, cookie sheet
Tip!  Consider making these drops with your favourite smoothie or other baby food.  You can really do it with any liquid!

  1. Mash ingredients together with a fork, or blend together for a smooth consistency.
  2. Drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto a parchment lined cookie sheet.  The smaller you make them, the faster they melt, so keep that in mind! If you're type A like us you can use a squeeze bottle or ziplock bag with the edge cut off to form perfect little circles.
  3. Place cookie sheet in freezer until drops set.
  4. Remove drops and enjoy!  Store these in the freezer until a teething emergency beckons.
We had to try these out, too, and they're delicious! Our little ones devoured these, although the cold texture shocked them at first!
Get in my belly!
Let us know how your little one enjoys them!  Also let us know what your best teething tips are!  We need the help....Help!
